Singled Out: Occult Detective Club's C'mon Levi
I wrote "C'mon Levi" shortly after my sister Mia had her first son. I know personally how easy it is to look around and feel discouraged and maybe even like the task at hand is insurmountable -- whatever that task may be -- but then there are those brief moments of excitement/motivation that come like bolts of lightening and that's really what the song is about. Typically I'll write vaguely enough so that anyone could apply their specific situation to any particular song, but with "C'mon Levi" I decided to eschew the anonymity I'm more comfortable with in favor of a direct approach.
I'm also talking about that feeling like your clocks run down and now there are certain things you can't get away with anymore -- socially, politically, or personally and how, in my opinion, a critical aspect of "maturing" is the ability to pass that torch without regret. Needless to say, I've got a lot of growing up left to do.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
